From thermo-electric coolboxes to a compressor-cooled box, 12 V car coolboxes to outdoor coolboxes – your portable coolbox is as individual as you are! In order to find the best portable coolbox for you, your car and your everyday travelling needs, here are some key things to consider before purchasing a coolbox
The most common cooling technologies are: compressor coolboxes, thermo-electric coolboxes and absorption coolboxes. Compressor coolboxes are very powerful and can provide an excellent cooling performance, even at extremely high ambient temperatures. Thermo-electric coolboxes are lightweight and not only cool – they can heat too! Absorption coolboxes operate on gas power and work wherever you are, independently of the availability of electricity
An important aspect to consider is whether you need a portable coolbox that keeps, cools or freezes. A compressor box has the power to freeze regardless of the ambient temperature, while an absorption coolbox can cool contents depending on the ambient temperature. A thermo-electric coolbox keeps contents cool, rather than cooling them itself. It’s therefore necessary to pre-cool items before placing them inside a thermo-electric coolbox
Pick an electric coolbox according to the ambient temperature. If you want to be able to keep your ice cream frozen in extreme heat, you should look into a compressor coolbox. If you are looking for an electric cooler for use in cooler climates, a thermo-electric cooler which cools up to 20°C below the ambient temperature should be sufficient.
